St1 and Digia have signed a three-year AMS (Application Management Service) agreement, by which St1 is effectively outsourcing its information system maintenance to Digia. St1 now has one partner with overall responsibility for its business-critical applications.
Just before Midsummer, Digia released the 112 Suomi mobile application, developed together with the Emergency Response Centre Administration. The application improves the accuracy of emergency geolocation and speeds up the delivery of aid in emergency situations. By Sunday, the application had been downloaded from various application stores 127,275 times. The application has been used for emergency calls more than 500 times.
The 112 Suomi application, developed by Digia, enables the automatic delivery of the caller's location information to the emergency service dispatcher. The application, created together with the Emergency Response Centre Administration, may be downloaded for free on Android phones and iPhone and it will soon be released also for Windows phones. Emergency Response Centre Administration recommends downloading the application to all smartphones.
Digia and Swedish Konsultnet have signed a partnership agreement. This partnership will complement Digia's financial management services with Konsultnet's Effectplan software – a tool for automating budgeting and enhancing financial reporting.
